THE FIRST FROST IS COMING TO NORTHERN ARIZONA … AND SO IS THE FIRST FROST FOOD DRIVE
Those summer temperatures are finally on the decline and the first frost is just round the corner in Flagstaff. That means rising heat bills and more people in need of help to feed and keep their families war in the winter.
The St. Mary’s Flagstaff Facilities third annual “First Frost” Food drive is set for this Sunday, Oct. 2 in selected Flagstaff neighborhoods. If you received a St. Mary’s door hanger during the past week, more than 200 volunteers will be in your neighborhood to collect non-perishable food donations. Simply leave the donations in a bad near your mailbox and our volunteers will do the rest.
If you didn’t receive a flyer and still wish to be a part of the drive, simply bring your non-perishable food donations to the St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance Flagstaff facility (1801 W. Route 66) between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday and volunteers and staff will gladly accept them. Of course if Sunday is a busy day for your family, the Food Bank facility is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to accept your help for northern Arizona’s Hungry.
Distributing more than 12 million pounds of food annually to dozens of local non-profit partner agencies, St. Mary’s is proud to be Flagstaff’s food bank!
